It's 11th of September, 2018!
  Halloween stuff is done.
 My cool, yet funny, embroidered beanie, bags and door sign posters will be
in my shop around Sunday, September 16th!

The Shipping prices have been udpated by then-
for example if you live in EU, your t-shirt ships for 5 euros from Latvia,
If you live in USA it ships from there-so,
 NO concerns about customs! Hooray!

But first a quick holiday- My Etsy shop will be open again on 16th September.Take care!

I am re-vamping some recycled, nice, wooden chairs,

and hopefully getting them ready before winter comes.
I will put up a separate shop for them on Etsy. So, busy, busy!

Briar's revies has reviwed lately my Elf graphic novels! Here's the link to his blog:

Let's not forget either my fresh interview on the inspiring book
        blog 'Eclectic Moods' ( will be up as well!

us as elves
Katja Vartiainen has an art background. She is a painter, an illustrator,
 and a storyteller through her graphic novels.

 Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from the wide
cornucopia of comics, graphic novels, films, music(=everything).
Her literary interests are wide and varied.

With her husband they share a taste for humor, love for cats,
and they get inspired by our tragicomic planet and its curious creatures.

She has dabbled in arts, illustration, teaching, upholstery, painting chairs,
 walls, pictures, and whatnot, and is thus a self-declared multi-dilettantte.
